Photos aren't exactly clear, but it looks remarkably like Fuchsia Gall Mite attack - sorry to say there is no treatment, but its best to remove the fuchsia entirely so that spread is restricted. More info here

Ah, coastal county then, where it has spread along the south coast... still worth it, living by the sea, gall mite or not!

Is it right the first case was in Fareham in 2007, that about 20 miles west of here

I would burn it so as to not aid its spread.

Hi, I live in London and my 20yr old Fuchsia has Gall mite it's in the ground, it's going to be upsetting but I have to get rid, also another on the opposite side, and all but one (which seems to be ok) in containers. My question is how soon can I plant another ? Or should I find somethinG else 😢.

I think I would find something else as unless you can find & eradicate the source you will likely get it again & as you have found it is very upsetting to have to destroy plants.
When it comes to destroying the plants it's best to burn then as otherwise the weevil is just spread further.

Thank you, I'll probably wait awhile before I buy anything else for those corners.
I can only think that it came on one of the plants that I bought from a church fuchsia show.
But never say die ,I've just bought another from Morrisons that is going on the balcony other side of my flat.
